Acceptance & Commitment Therapy for Anxiety and Depression with Adapted DBT

Be present, open up and do what matters.

Learn to effectively address thoughts, feelings, and behaviors while minimizing reactivity.

The program integrates the evidence-based practices of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a behavioral therapy that has proven to work with a wide range of clients who present with emotional and behavioral difficulties. While the goal of the program is not symptom reduction, this is a benefit.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a behavioral therapy focusing on skills that assist in reduction of emotional dysregulation and an increase in effective behaviors.

Integrating both therapeutic approaches allows one to learn to effectively address thoughts, feelings, and behaviors while minimizing reactivity and avoidance.
